The world’s leading experts in remote sensing will gather at SPIE Sensors + Imaging from September 5-7 in Berlin, Germany. Combining two of Europe’s best optical engineering conference – SPIE Remote Sensing 2022 and SPIE Security + Defence 2022 – this event will showcase the latest sensor and photonic technology for imaging and monitoring, as well as sensor technologies.

Immervision is pleased to be one of the world leading experts speaking. In her session, Immervision’s Julie Buquet, will speak about the challenges next generation sUAS (small Unmanned Aircraft Systems) are facing to perform in challenging conditions.

Next generation of sUAS 360 surround vision cameras designed for automated navigation in low-light conditions

The next generation of sUAS (small Unmanned Aircraft Systems) for automated navigation will have to perform in challenging conditions, bad weather, high and low temperature and from dusk-to-dawn. The paper presents experimental results from a new wide-angle vision camera module specially optimized for low-light. We are benchmarking the performances of different versions of this new camera module (Monochrome, Color, Color +IR) and demonstrating the performances improvement generated by this camera module compared to other camera modules designed for low-light applications considering the efficiency of machine perception algorithms as the main KPIs (Key Performance Indicator).

After earning her Master’s Degree in Optics and Applied Computer Vision from the Institut d’Optique Graduate School, Paris, France, Julie Buquet attends the Laval University PhD program under the co-supervision of Simon Thibault, SPIE and OSA Fellow (Laboratory of Optics, Photonics and Laser, QC, Canada) and Jean-François Lalonde (Computer Vision and Systems Laboratory). Julie’s PhD is specialized in wide-angle imaging systems applied to supervised learning-based approaches. Currently working at Immervision, Julie shares her expertise in smart wide-angle imaging systems, and how to apply her research results to industrial applications.
